I think 121 is part of the "final series" as the 25 RSs ARE the final series (of Agera)? Within this series of 25, there will probably be almost as many "one offs" and a series of three within the series (for Japan).

Making a "final series" RS for this Geneva is probably just another way of saying, Agera is finished, we are working on something new.. a cliffhanger for next(?) Geneva. A message for the competitors at Geneva to think about? That's my guess..

Are we sure this isn't KS car? He posted this 18w ago.



Exact same color scheme as this car.

Also, although 128 is to be the first US Agera RS, that could kinda leave a loophole being that 121 may not be a standard RS but a "final edition" RS.

I'm trying to figure out what's going on. If this isn't KS car, did someone just choose the same spec? Is it a friends? Giant coincedence?

From what I understand #121 is a more Red Orange, accent color is Silver not White and it's chassis 121 not 128 :^)

I hope KS is going to name his car "The Scream", after a famous Painting by a Scandinavian artist (maybe portraying CvK listening to his customers trying to make their very car more special specified than the others?).. ;^)

Quote by Edvard Munch “The camera will never compete with the brush and palette until such time as photography can be taken to Heaven or Hell.” I feel it relates to Koenigsegg in some way .. being in heaven and hell at the same time? "Pleasantly unpleasant", famous quote by one of Munch's fellow countrymen, Jens Sverdrup.

CvK is not alone in this regard, every brand has to "struggle" with customers trying to outdo one another in terms of bespokness. Just look at all the crazy MSO specs P1s/LTs, people doing crazier and crazier Zondas/Huayras and Veyrons as years go by.. Will be interesting to see to what extent Egg customers will go to "outdo" #121 and #127 in bespokeness. With #128, I sort of get the feeling that once the customer was told there was an orange RS in the works with gold dust in the paint, he requested diamonds together with gold in his just do top #121...
It's all a bit silly if you ask me, I prefer it nice and clean anyway, prime example being #105 wich remains as my favorite Agera by far.

I want the most gold and diamonds you ever made, I want even wider wheels and 100, no 200, no 300 hp extra, I want über front splitter, quadruple canards, yes! On the mirrors too! The widest side-skirts and extreme wings all over the car. Roof-scoop, check! .. did I say with extra diamonds? My ego can't take not having the most extreme car made so far..

I love how 122 looked the other day, without the rear wing and model lettering and with the forged 9-spoke CCX wheels. Clean, classic ..

There is something with "Pleasantly unpleasant", "More comfortable than what... BEING STABBED?" and all these things makes me think there NEEDS to be a "The Scream", "Despair" or "The Sick Child" -Edition without diamond dust! (but maybe with 300 hp extra :^) Or what about giving cars names from Bergman (Music in Darkness, Dreams, Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal, The Devils Eye) or Hamsun (Hunger, Growth of the Soil, Shallow Soil, The Wild Choir)? No diamond dust, just dust and Scandinavian melancholy. Available in Black or Grey only! :^)

So will this just be an RS with a one:1 engine or is there more to it? The downforce figures look the same as the RS from memory?

There actually seems to be somewhat more to it as all the other RS models have a kerb weight of 1395, according to Koenigsegg's own website, whereas this is 20 kgs lighter.

Would be interesting to know where the weightsavings were made and whether all the One:1 spec'ed RS models weigh 1375 or if something rather unique (and costly I'd imagine) was done to further shed mass on the "One of 1".
